Foundation Year courses

At UWE Bristol, we offer an exciting integrated Foundation Year for all of our undergraduate Art and Design degree courses. This is a great opportunity for you to take advantage of an additional value-added year (Year 0) preparing you for Year 1 of your degree. This course will give you the skills and confidence to find out what type of artist you are. Not only will you develop your creative portfolio while studying the foundation year, but you will have the opportunity to reach and improve your English language and communication skills through a unique module designed for those in the creative arts.

I really enjoyed the Foundation Year. With the vast amount of workshops that we did, I was able to try and experiment with different programs and techniques that I had not used before. This allowed me to create a wide variety of works that helped strengthen my portfolio.
